Riverdale Cast: The Real-Life Couples Revealed
"Riverdale" features scandalous affairs and crazy romances among the characters of the popular series. But what about the cast's real-life romances? Let's have a look.
The fifth season of "Riverdale" is underway, and the storyline is as "insane" as always, having become one of the defining shows on The CW during its run so far.
The show's favorites all returned for the newly released season, as well as a few new characters added to the mix. But what are their real-life romances like?

1. KJ Apa as Archie Andrews
We know that Archie landed in jail after his romance with Veronica. We still hope that the couple will end up with a happily ever after, but one thing is clear: not a lot of real-life love stories can compare to the craziness of Archie’s.
KJ is very private about his life outside of work, but the 21-year-old is much more comfortable around women since he moved to the US from New Zealand, since the blokes there are rather shy around the ladies.
The actor once brought Camila Mendes home to his parents. Fans wondered if it was like his girlfriend meeting the parents' situation, but it was just an invitation to a close friend.
Meanwhile, the actor had a fling with the 16-year-old model Corinne Isherwood. They apparently started dating in November 2017, but in June 2018, KJ declared himself single.
2. Camila Mendes as Veronica Lodge
Mendes was in a relationship with Ian Wallace, the moviemaker, for a long time, but they broke up in 2017. It was said recently that she had started something with Victor Houston, her old high school sweetheart.
They met in New York and formed a new connection. When summer ended, their relationship did too because Camila is not looking to date anyone right now, as she said:
“It’s just dating people in the industry is tough. I did for a little bit. I've just dated actors. It's hard when that's your world. You only meet people through work.”
3. Cole Sprouse as Jughead and Lili Reinhardt as Betty Cooper
Sprouse is very private in real life but uploaded several pictures of Reinhardt, calling her his muse in several remarks, so fans knew something was going on.
The happy couple then made their red carpet debut while publicly confirming their relationship status at the 2018 Met Gala.
4. Madelaine Petsch as Cheryl Blossom
No fan could contain their excitement when Cheryl was finally with Tony, and the scene where the guys rescue her from Sister of the Quiet Mercy was a tear-jerker.
In real life, the actress is very open about dating Travis Mills, and they have been together for more than a year, often posting videos being silly on Youtube.
They both have busy schedules, but the actress says that the distance helps keep them together. Some of her fans find it crazy that she shares everything on social, and she once said:
“I'm a huge advocate of showing my relationship online because love does exist, and I think it's so important for our generation to know that love will win.”
5. Ashleigh Murray as Josie McCoy
We just love seeing Josie perform with The Pussycat on the series, but no one knows much about her life except for her short relationship with Sweet Pea.
The actress’ real life is even more mysterious, but she is 29 years old and playing a teenager on the show. When it comes to love, she uploaded a picture with a guy hugging her from behind, though she did not give details.
6. Casey Cott as Kevin Keller
It’s sad that Keller and Mouse cannot get it together, especially because Kevin tried joining his friend's group to get closer to him, but we hope that Mouse realizes what he has soon.
In real life, Keller also keeps his private life out of the spotlight, but he has uploaded a couple of pictures with his girlfriend, Stephanie Styles, who is also an actress.
7. Mark Consuelos as Hiram Lodge
We are all looking forward to seeing how Veronica will get her revenge, but the actor is nothing like the villain he plays on-screen in real life.
He was born in Spain, and his wife of 22 years is the talk show host, Kelly Ripa. They met while working together on "All My Children," and she fell for his charisma and good looks.
Ripa revealed in an interview that when Consuelos walked on the set, she saw “their whole future together on her mind.”
They have three children, and their eldest made an appearance on the show as a young Hiram, and we can all agree that he looks exactly like his father.
8. Madchen Amick as Alice Cooper
Fans of the show rejoiced when Alice and FP finally got together in a steamy scene. They have been through so much, so it's the perfect turnout.
Meanwhile, the actress has been with her husband, David Alexis, for 25 years. They got married when she was only 20 years old, and they share two children.
9. Skeet Ulrich as FP Jones
FP is not the best father figure in the world, or he wasn’t until recently, because he seems to have turned things around. In real life, though, he is a great father.
He has been married two times and had twins from the first one with actress Georgina Kate. In 2016, he was engaged to Rose Costa, but they broke up, so he is back on the market.
